Ip address auto changing?

afer configuring my Fedora Core 4 server with a static ip address (on the NIC card) with 192.XXX.XXX.10 it does not recieve ip packets on it - ie when i ping it. But instead it by itself created an ip address which i`m not aware of 192.XXX.XXX.16 and can only be pinged via this self created ip address.
what happened here? and how can i get this machine to use the static ip i created?

In /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts you should have files like "ifcfg-eth#" where number is the NIC number (e.g. eth0, eth1, eth2 etc...). Check that file and make sure BOOTPROTO=static rather than BOOTPROTO=dhcp - it is dhcp that requests and IP on start.
